I think you're right - ads alone won't do it. Tshirts alone won't do 
it. I suspect that donations alone won't do it (although for any given 
month, probably one of them might). It's going to take a range of 
things all happening at once, varying from month to month. That way, if 
one of them does really badly in a given month, we're still OK.
